Our number in the hospital went down by two today to seven. That is very positive. Since hospitalizations and mortality follow spikes in cases by a few weeks, we will keep a close eye on these numbers.

 

The best way to slow the spread of the virus is for everyone to wear a mask when out in public, to avoid crowds, to social distance (stay 6-feet from others), to wash their hands with soap and water often and thoroughly, to stay home if they have a fever or are coughing, to increase sanitation, and to avoid touching their faces.

 

The Lake Cumberland area has experienced 682 Cumulative Confirmed Cases and there have been 20,804 Confirmed COVID-19 cases across all

120 Kentucky Counties as of 07/15/20 (this includes 20,677 statewide plus 127 recently reported cases in Lake Cumberland not in the Governor's/Department for Public Health's daily report). Regardless of the confirmed case count for any Lake Cumberland County, we believe

COVID-19 to be widespread. The LCDHD is working to identify and contact all those with whom any positive case may have come into close contact.
